第二部分: 阅读理解 (共两节,满分 40 分) 第一节(共 15 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 30 分) 阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中,选出最佳选项。 A Do you like shopping? Or does the thought of wandering round the shops fill you with terror? For some of us,shopping is an enjoyable way of spending our spare time and our money. For me. it's something I would rather avoid. Thank goodness for the Internet! It's more convenient to buy CDs,electrical items,even food,from the comfort of your sofa.But that’s not the only reason:price is an important factor.We can buy goods and services cheaper online. But sometimes the problem is knowing what to buy.This has led to a type of shopping called “showrooming”. Showrooming is something I've done.I will go to a shop to see,touch and try out products but then go home and buy them online at a knock-down price.I'm not alone in doing this.Research by a company called Foolproof,found 24%of people showroomed while Christmas shopping in 2013. Amy Cashman,Head of Technology at TNS UK,says the reasons for this new shopping habit are that “people are lacking time,lacking money and they want security about the products they are buying.”She explains that consumers are not only shopping online at home but they are using the Internet in store or on their smartphones to shop around. But does this mean technology will kill shops? Certainly shops will change. They will have to offer more competitive prices or encourage people to buy more by giving in-store discounts or free gifts. We mustn’t forget that buying in a shop means you can get expert advice from the sales assistant and you can get good aftercare.It’s good to speak to a real human rather than look at a faceless computer screen but at least by showrooming,you get the best of both worlds! 21.What does showrooming mean in the text? A.Trying in shops and buying online. B.Showing products in a room. C.Buying something in a store. D.Shopping on the Internet. 22.What can be inferred from Paragraph 4 ? A.Online shops will disappear. B.Free gifts will surely promote sales. C.Shops need necessary changes. D.Shops will be replaced by online shops. 23.The author's attitude towards showrooming is A.critical B.neutral C.supportive D.casual B Tim Richter and his wife, Linda, had taught for over 30 years near Buffalo, New York—he in computers, she in special education. "Teaching means everything to us," Tim would say. In April 1998, he learned he would need a heart operation. It was the kind of news that leads to some serious thinking about life's purpose. Not long after the surgery, Tim saw a brochure(小手册) describing Imagination Library, a program started by Dolly Parton’s foundation (基金会) that mailed a book every month to children from birth to age five in the singer's home town of Sevier, Tennessee. “I thought, maybe Linda and I could do something like this when we retire," Tim recalls. He placed the brochure on his desk, "as a reminder". Five years later, now retired and with that brochure still on the desk, Tim clicked on imagination- library .com. The program had been opened up to

partners who could take advantage of book and postage discounts. The quality of the books was of great concern to the Richter’s. Rather than sign up online, they went to Dollywood for a look-see. “We didn’t want to give the children rubbish,” says Linda. The books---reviewed each year by teachers, literacy specialists, and Dollywood board members---included classics such as Ezra Jack Keats’s The Snowy Day and newer books like Anna Dewdney’s Llama Llama series. Satisfied, the couple set up the Richter Family Foundation and got to work. Since 2004, they have shipped more than 12,200 books to preschoolers in their area. Megan Williams, a mother of four, is more than appreciative: “This program introduces us to books I’ve never heard of.” The Richters spend about $400 a month sending books to 200 children. “Some people sit there and wait to die,” says Tim. “Others get as busy as they can in the time they have left.” 24. What led Tim to think seriously about the meaning of life? A . His health problem. B. His love for teaching. C. The influence of his wife. D. The news from the Web. 25. What did Tim want to do after learning about Imagination Library? A. Give out brochures. B. Do something similar. C. Write books for children. D. Retire from being a teacher. 26. According to the text, Dollly Parton is . A. a well-known surgeon B. a mother of a four-year-old C. a singer born in Tennessee D. a computer programmer 27. Why did the Richters go to Dollywood? A. To avoid signing up online. B. To meet Dollywood board members. C. To make sure the books were the newest. D. To see if the books were of good quality. 28. What can we learn from Tim’s words in the last paragraph? A. He needs more money to help the children. B. He wonders why some people are so busy. C. He tries to save those waiting to die. D. He considers his efforts worthwhile. C Young Mister Smith had an idea for his employer. It was an idea for saving money for the company by increasing prices. At the same time, Smith suggested that the company sell goods of less value. If his employer liked the idea, Smith might be given more pay. Perhaps he might even get a better job with the company. Business had been very slow. So Mister Smith’s employer thought a few minutes about the idea. But then she shook her head. “I am sorry, Smith,” his employer said. “It just will not wash.” Now, the meaning of these English words should be, “It will not get clean.” Yet, Smith’s idea did not have anything to do with making something clean. So why did his employer say, “It will not wash?” Most word experts agree that “it will not wash” means it will not work. In the nineteenth
4

century in England, the expression came to mean an undependable statement. It was used mainly to describe an idea. But sometimes it was used about a person. Happily for the young employee Smith, his employer wanted him to do well in the company. So the employer “talked turkey” to him. She said, “Your idea would be unfair to our buyers. Think of another way to save money.” A century ago, to talk turkey meant to talk pleasantly. Turkeys in the barnyard (仓院) were thought to be speaking pleasantly to one another. In recent years, the saying has come to mean an attempt to teach something important. Mister Smith thought of a better idea after his employer talked turkey to him. He was given an increase in pay. So if your idea “will not wash,” try “talking turkey” to yourself and come up with a better idea. 29. What’s the main purpose of the passage? A. To give some advice on office work. B. To explore the meanings of two expressions. C. To share Mister Smith’s personal experience. D. To tell about the development of the English language. 30. Which of the following words can best describe the employer in the passage? A. Hard-working. B. Unlucky. C. Honest. D. Cold-blooded. 31. Why did the employer refuse Mister Smith’s idea? A. The idea would cost her much money. B. She knew Smith played a trick on her. C. She herself wanted to get a better job. D. The idea would do harm to customers. D Have you ever taken a test that you thought you could have passed easily, only to make some silly mistakes that really hurt your grade? More than a few students have done that. And some seem to do it over and over again. There are several problem areas that can cause students to goof up or do poorly in a test that they could have passed. Some students can become overconfident in their knowledge of the subject matter. They think they know the material better than they actually do. It is easy for students to misjudge their own knowledge, and when they realize that they don’t know the material, it is too late. What happens more often, though, is that some students feel they are smart enough to be able to guess their way through a test. So they don’t bother studying the material. They are overconfident in their ability to figure things out. In either case, overconfidence can result in lower grades in tests. Does this apply to you? Another thing that can happen is that students underestimate (低估) the difficulty of the test. They expect an easy test, but the teacher throws in a real tough test that they haven’t prepared for. Sometimes the teacher may cover material in the test that students weren’t expecting. That can happen, especially if you weren’t paying attention in class. Finally, there are students who don’t feel that getting a good grade is important to them, so they don’t bother to study or even try to do well. Such students may be trying to punish their parents, have a poor image of themselves, or are just plain foolish. Hopefully, you are not one of these students.
